Fire in the sky : comets and meteors, the decisive centuries in British art and science
Roberta J.M. Olson (Creator), Jay M. Pasachoff
Britain in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries produced a larger number and greater variety of representations of comets and meteors than anywhere else. This beautifully illustrated book examines the link between these works and the achievements of British science in the wake of Newton and Halley.
